Monday marks the first of three days of the NFL Career Development Symposium being attended by Green Bay Packers assistant head coach and inside linebackers coach Winston Moss at the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania.
“We are pleased to offer this program to provide a diverse group of coaching and front office talent with the tools and networking opportunities to take the next step in their careers,” said NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, who will also be participating in the program. “This symposium will help develop our coaching and front office pipeline and build on the progress we have made over the past decade.”
The three-day program will engage aspiring head coach and general manager candidates through presentations, panel discussions, breakout sessions and networking opportunities with owners, club presidents, coaches, general managers and league executives.
Among the presentations Moss will have the opportunity to attend is one given by former Packers executive John Dorsey, currently the general manager of the Kansas City Chiefs, and another by former Packers assistant Joe Philbin, currently head coach of the Miami Dolphins
Program session titles include: “Expectations of Leadership,” “Player Health and Safety,” “Managing Key Relationships,” “Brand Building/Media Training,” and “Developing and Describing Your ‘90-Day Plan.’”
Moss is one of 21 former NFL players taking part in the event.
